Abstract:After some general remarks on the personality, the author distinguished two senses in which the term African personality can be employed, viz.: 1. the psycho-social, and 2. the politico-literary. He examines these two, beginning with the politico-literary (defined by Leopold Senghor as 'the sum total of the values of the civilisation of the Negro world, such as they are expressed in the life and works of Negroes').
